Western Propane Gas Association Urges California Legislature to Promote Energy Diversity and Innovation

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Propane fuel continues to play a significant role in helping California meet its greenhouse gas emissions targets while serving millions of customers with a critical source of clean energy, according to the Western Propane Gas Association (WPGA).

The group called on lawmakers to support the "Clean Air Now" bill package, which will help promote the use and development of many clean energy sources.

"Whether we're talking about natural gas, biofuels or propane, it is vital that the California legislature foster a marketplace that protects and promotes the many types of clean alternative fuels used today and being innovated," said Joy Alafia, president of WPGA, at the group's legislative day in Sacramento.

"While most people may associate propane with backyard barbecues, our fuel represents a reliable and affordable source of clean energy," said Alafia. "The value of the fuel is spread across the state."

In urban areas like Los Angeles and the Bay Area, propane fuels everything from commercial trucks and school buses, to warehouse forklifts. In remote rural areas, propane is often used to heat homes, cook food and generate electricity.

WPGA cited a number of economic and environmental benefits related to propane:

WPGA's Alafia said that these numbers will only get better over time because the industry is committed to commercializing renewable propane.

"Our Next Generation Propane will be sustainable," she said. "Renewable propane made from animal fat, beef tallow, vegetable oil, used cooking oil and methane-capture offer an avenue for low carbon and even carbon negative solutions."
